Overview

The First offender's court intervention service (FOCiS) is a compulsory drug education program for first-time offenders sentenced to the program by the Magistrates' Court in Victoria. FOCiS is available to first time offenders found in possession of a small (non-commercial) quantity of illicit drugs other than marijuana. FOCiS aims to:

Upon completion of the education, the court will no longer deal with the matter. If the offender repeatedly fails to attend, a breach process may be evoked and the matter referred back to court.

FOCis is delivered at several metropolitan and country centres.
